Spaghetti Squash with Garlic Butter

Since I had that first bit of squash, I can't stop. Also, all the recipes I looked up for it were too fiddly or- the horror!- faux pasta. I hate that. It's wrong and stupid and WRONG. Except for the instances mentioned yesterday, but mostly WRONG! So, I shut out the world and made a bowl of spaghetti squash- which, again, didn't really need a recipe.

Nuke the squash as stated before. In a pan, heat a knob or two of butter in a pan, saute minced garlic and a little black pepper until butter is flavorful. Mix in squash and eat.

I would also like to add a note on Starbucks: Their gingerbread lattes are what made me not like lattes all those years ago, but their eggnogs lattes... let's just say getting one every day for almost a week can't be wrong. So creamy and good and actually eggnoggy-tasting, but not overwhelming. That's not all the containers I had; I finally threw some of them out.

Which reminds me, I would like to make a gingerbread house and homemade eggnog for the first time this year. Don't let me forget!

Ya know you can start out small on the house using a box of graham crackers. OR use chocolate bars,ummmm.
Oh and the squash makes me jealous. I really need to just go buy one!

It's always nice to meet another squash obsessed person!
I made my first gingerbread house last year and it was a total blast! You can find patterns for them online and other than remembering not to touch them while the "glue" is drying they aren't too hard. I'll be making one (and posting about it) later this month.
